RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS AT THE WORTH LIBRARY, DUBLIN

The Edward Worth Library, Dublin, is offering two research fellowships (duration one month each), to be held in 2017, to encourage research relevant to its collections.

The collection is particularly strong in three areas: early modern medicine, early modern history of science and, given that Worth was a connoisseur book collector interested in fine bindings and rare printing, the History of the Book. Research does not, however, have to be restricted to these three key areas.

The closing date is Monday 3 April 2017
